Age:
Children (from the age of 5), adolescents, adults.
Procedure:
Group or individual administration; testing with one version takes 15 min.
Test users:
Psychologists (psychology diploma required).

DESCRIPTION: The TCT-DP has two versions: A and B. Subjects take both versions of the test, one after the other. Subjects are to complete incomplete drawings in any way they like. They may draw whatever they like and how they like: everything is permissible and everything is correct.

RELIABILITY: High concurrent reliability and moderate internal consistency of both versions.

VALIDITY: Established concurrent validity – TCT-DP scores discriminate between occupational groups selected for high versus low level of the measured trait. Established construct validity for adolescents – in both age groups the TCT-DP scores correlate with creative behaviour as manifest in verbal material and with school grades and fluid intelligence in 18-19-year-olds; they do not correlate with these two dimensions in 14-15-year-olds.

NORMS: The TCT-DP was normalised for adolescents in two age groups: 14-15 and 18-19. Means and standard deviations for various adult groups are also provided.

APPLICATIONS: For screening (creativity training; as a selective instrument in recruitment to schools or vocations), in individual diagnosis (enriched diagnosis of intellect; prediction of success in endeavors requiring creative functioning) and for research (studies of the nature, development and determinants of creativity and cross-cultural studies).
